Thoughts on Boldin when he returns?

Postby Berge » Thu Sep 02, 2004 1:36 pm

Considering trying to grab him to stash away for later in the season.

Any thoughts on what he might do? Bust?

I have him stashed in two of my leagues. He should be a good producer for the playoff run... I wouldn't take him any earlier than round 11, but if you can get him after that, I think he has great value, there.

Well, honestly thinking about grabbing him in a trade where he's an extra basically.

Only worried about the playoffs. I've got a good core of WR in the mean time.

Not knowing the trade, I can say that I think Boldin has good value for teams that are good enough to make the playoff run... And I think he has GREAT value in a keeper...

It's gonna be last year's Vick all over again.

You finally wait so long and you are disappointed.

By the time he comes back, he'll be rusty, still not 100%, and you're gonna risk your fantasy playoffs on a guy who hasn't shown you anything all year?

Not true... Boldin should be back after the bye, which gives you plenty of games to evaluate him before you have to choose a playoff roster... But if he returns to form, you'll be damn glad you kept him....

He'll be back prior to the fantasy playoffs so you'll have time to evaluate him.

Well, I have Chad Johnson and Ward to anchor my WR squad and I'd be dealing Tiki (backup 4th RB) for S. Moss and Boldin

I have to disagree with you a little bit, Huge. I don't think anyone's banking their playoffs on a WR to carry them through the playoffs, certainly not like they did last year with Vick (who as a QB, was especially poised to help some at an impact position).

However, I think Huge's point is well taken -- be sure to temper your expectations. Boldin COULD be a factor, but he won't singlehandedly put you over the top.
